Goddesses | Dhevathaigal

42 mins
9 / 10 (59)


A short subject about three extraordinary women in Tamil Nadu. Lakshmi is a professional singer and dancer at funerals. Krishnaveni makes her living by burying and cremating unclaimed dead bodies from the rivers and streets. Sethuraku never went to school and instead took to the sea at an early age.

MUBI's take

Following three marginalized women in their daily pursuit of equality, Goddesses perceptively probes the intersection of economic, caste, and gender-based oppression. The extraordinary (and unfiltered!) protagonists of this uplifting documentary pursue unusual roads on the path to liberation.
